Ezeemo, Chidoka preach against money politics as Anglican faithful holds rally

By O’star Eze

The former Vice Chancellor of University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Professor Chinedu Nebo has called on all Anglican faithful to cultivate the habit of praying for their leaders while frowning at the rate people leave their profession for politics because of the quick wealth it promises.

Nebo, who is also an Anglican clergy said this during his homily at the 2017 edition of Anglican Prayer Rally which held recently at Ekwueme Square, Awka with the theme, “Help From Above.”

Nebo opined that man cannot solve his problems by himself and should always rely on God through prayer emphasising the need for Christians to pray for those who God has placed as leaders over their affairs.

“Nigeria is in distress presently and there is dire need for us to humble themselves and pray and repent from wicked ways for God to heal our land.

“People of God should not be afraid so long as we are anchored to the Lord Jesus Christ. God who promised he will never leave us and will solve all our problems.”

Speaking with regard to the forthcoming elections, Nebo advised Anambrarians “not to  compromise  ideals as the flagship state in the southeast and encouraged all electorate to be active participants in the effort to produce our next governor.”

The bishop of Awka Anglican Diocese, Bishop Alexander Ibezim in his remark, called for a moment of silence for those who had died between the last year’s prayer rally and now.

He said that the fourth edition of the rally was “to bring together all Anglicans to thank God for what he has done, a moment to observe all saints day and also to remind themselves that at all times we should redisover where we are coming from, locate where we are and envisage where we are going to.”

Ibezim also harped on the need for Anglican faithfuls to realise the benefits of working together like members of one family

“We can move mountains if we remain together without divisions,” he said. 

The Administrative Secretary of Aguata Diocese, Venerable Obiagbaoso called on Christians to desist from idolatry and reviving paganism. 

PPA and UPP governorship candidates, Godwin Chukwunaenye Ezeemo and Osita Chidoka were also present at the event and during their goodwill speeches advised Anglican faithful to say no to “money politics.”
